sun & ink

You know that shivery feeling you get after spending hours in the sun? That's what I have right now. (Also, teeny-tiny freckles have begun to appear around my cheeks, which is surprising and very welcome, as I never tan and I rarely even get freckles. Success!)

Sitting on the slightly damp grass during lunch break and again after school, drinking ice tea and tossing around silly ideas for next weekend. Wearing pegged trousers, ankles bare. I'm immensely tired and school is a pain but the sunlight and my friends and these drawings by Stephanie Kubo make things easier.

What made you happy today?


  1. loved this post :)
    you write so well!

  2. I love days like that. Today your post made me happy :)

  3. I can't quite decide which of these I like best. I love the mask in the top one, but the 3D viewer in the bottom one brings out all sorts of good childhood memories...

  4. i need to get some sun myself and i have to admit, i wouldn't mind some freckles on my face!!

    ps: i ADORE this blog header--you always have the best ones.

  5. Maria: Thank you, as always.

    Paula: Oh goodness, thank you. :)

    Carrie: Those 3D viewers, oh the nostalgia...

    Meg: Thank you! My current header is a rough-ish draft that I'm too lazy to change. (While we're on the subject, I must say I love your blog header and the rest of the artwork. Lovely and unique!)
